Description:
At the left, the hands of King Osorkon II can be seen. The king presents the magical eye of the god Horus, one of the most potent of all Egyptian symbols, to the gods Atum (who wears the white crown of Upper Egypt) and Shu (who has a feather on his head). In return, the gods give the king “all life, stability and dominion like (the sun god) Re forever” and “kingship great in joy.” This relief (and E225 and E226) comes from the jubilee portal built by Osorkon II at the Temple of Bastet in Bubastis.
